The Bribery Act 2010
The Bribery Act 2010 came into effect in July 2011. The Act has created a number of new bribery and corruption offences. The University, in conjunction with Marshall ACM, has developed an online training package which aims to provide staff with a basic understanding of the key principles of the Bribery Act, and its implications for the University. All staff are encouraged to undertake this training module, and it should be completed by all those whose work means they are at an increased risk of encountering bribery activity.
Opportunities are provided by numerous external companies and organisations, which your department may be able to pay for.
